While her boss the prince was busy wooing his betrothed, Likotsi had her own love affair after swiping right on a dating app. But her romance had ended in heartbreak, and now, back in NYC again, she’s determined to rediscover her joy—so of course she runs into the woman who broke her heart.
When Likotsi and Fabiola meet again on a stalled subway train months later, Fab asks for just one cup of tea. Likotsi, hoping to know why she was unceremoniously dumped, agrees. Tea and food soon leads to them exploring the city together, and their past, with Fab slowly revealing why she let Likotsi go, and both of them wondering if they can turn this second chance into a happily ever after.
After reading “A Princess In Theory” I always wondered what happened with Likosti and her mystery date. So it’s pretty much safe to say how excited I was to read this book!
“Finding a sexual partner is easy,” Likotsi replied. “Finding someone that makes you need to know more about them is not.”
The story was told in past and present tense which I really enjoyed. It’s nice to have a backstory and be “there” when the couple fall for each other. I loved the banter and chemistry between Likosti and Fabiola. They come from different worlds but they make it work.
With novellas it’s usually hard for me to feel a connection but Cole did an excellent job and I feel the attraction. I haven’t read that many f/f novels before and this wasn’t bad at all. I think I will start to branch out more in this area. I loved the fact that the novella didn’t have over the top drama and when everything unfolded it pertained to certain issues going on in the world right now.
I’m usually not a fan of novellas but this was a well written one that I was so sad to see end. I hope we see more of Likosti and Fabiola in “A Prince On Paper” and I can’t wait to catch up with the other characters as well!!
